When you’re hungry around Montmartre, consider skipping the tourist-flooded cafés and crêpe shops. A short walk north of Sacré-Cœur, Café Pimpin sits on a street corner near the Jules Joffrin Métro station. Expect to find fantastic coffee and coffee drinks, simple and delicious breakfast and lunch offerings, baked goods, wine, beer and a warm ambiance. A friendly staff, light décor and varied seating options help create the café's neighborhood hub vibe; workerbees bring their laptops to sit at the counter in the window, groups gather at the large communal table, and old friends catch up over breakfast on the banquette. Though the space is well lit thanks to its wall of southeast-facing windows, you can soak up even more rays on Café Pimpin’s terrasse picnic tables. Order the granola bowl and a mocha, you won't be disappointed.
